Warfighters on the front lines have a lot to worry about, and the connectors linking them to networked radios, wearable computers, displays, weapons sights, and identification-friend-or-foe systems should be something else to worry about. Warfighters need reliability in all kinds of conditions, including rain, fog, water, dust, mud, extreme heat, arctic cold, and fungus. At the same time, connectors can become entangled on branches, underbrush, heavy equipment and other obstacles, and warfighters need a connector that will break free in these kinds of emergency conditions.
